Happy Easter

Today I'm celebrating the resurrection of my Savior! Jesus came to earth to bear the punishment for my sins, your sins, the sins of the world.  Sins he never committed.  But His love for us is so great, he paid the price that we should pay.  WOW. 

Even more amazing is that He did this for everyone - even those who choose not to follow Him.  He knew they wouldn't follow Him but He took on their sins and their punishment.  Such Love!

Here is a card I found on my camera from last year.  It is a picture of the wallpaper in a bedroom at my sister's house on the river.  We were there for a sister's week visit.  There are three of us (our youngest sister passed a few years ago).  Our favorite colors are pink, blue, and yellow.  Are you seeing a trend?  There is actually a fourth woman in a green suit.  This was my thank you card for a great weekend.

I love my family!

Happy Easter...may your day, your week, your life be blessed by the Father.  Susan

Thank you

My son got married on Saturday.  It was a beautiful wedding ... simple, tasteful, lovely - just like my son and his wife.  I was so happy to see them happy.

I didn't make them a card for their wedding - I know, kind of like the cobbler with no shoes.  But I did make 50 thank you cards for them.  Their theme was burlap and lace - kind of like them - cowboy and angel!

Thanks for stopping by, Susan

March cards 2

Love it when a plan comes together. Got up at 4:30 to take my hubby to work and came home to nap before meeting a friend for breakfast.  Then I spent the day in my scrap room creating cards.

March Cards

Here are my cards for March (so far).  I've got one in progress that I hope to have done on my lunch break today.

I've been busy crocheting so I've not spent much time in my scrap room but I've got it cleaned!  I can't create when it is messy. 

I was trying to re-sticky my cricut mats and it was the dead of winter with much snow on the ground.  But I needed to cut some things and I'm too cheap to buy a new mat when I have 4 perfectly good ones (albeit, not sticky).

So I taped them off and sprayed them in my scrap room.  I guess I wasn't as careful as I thought because my chair mat now has lots of little scraps stuck to it!  I guess I'll be on my hands and knees scraping that off :D

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week and be creative.  Susan

Aran Hearts Throw

I finally finished the afghan for my son and his fiance.  It was a free pattern from called Aran Hearts Throw.  I LOVE it.

Now I must get back to the several other projects I have in-the-works!  Thanks for stopping by.  Susan

I'm working on this throw for my son and his fiancĂ©. I hope to have it done in time (April).  Oh, and do you see my new tool.  Having this has helped my hands not ache as I'm crocheting.

Thanks for stopping ny, Susan
